Employee Misclassification Hearings Begin in Georgia

Hundreds of Port Truck Drivers Expected to Attend

Today in Savannah, Georgia, the site of one of the nation's largest ports, a public hearing will be conducted to hear cases of employee misclassification - 2,000 of which have been brought by port truck drivers misclassified as "independent contractors."

“We’re the lowest paid in the industry. Everybody else got a future in it but the driver. It’s time for a change and that’s why we’re raising our voices tomorrow.”  John Jackson, Savannah, port driver.

Hundreds of port drivers are expected to attend the first-ever public hearing on misclassification. From coast to coast port drivers are standing to end misclassification and gain justice for port drivers.
